Review of Guaica

So good and cheap and in a very unassuming place. I got the vegan option - arepas with plantains, black beans and avocado slices served with a few different sauces. My friends liked their arepas too - two of them ordered chicken and avocado and another ordered cheese, tomato and avocado. It was spicy and flavorful - two things that food in Argentina notoriously lacks. This place is the definition of "hidden gem."

I friend of ours took us their and the food was great, hot, fresh and cheap!!!
This is a very small place but well worth going if you like Venezuelan food or Colombian food. The people are so nice you will feel right at home with them.
They do not take credit cards so bring cash...IT IS WORTH IT!!!

¿Have you tried arepas? The team from Guaica Bar has a load of great recipes from traditional Venezuelan cuisine. The tastes would take any Venezuelan back home. We had a day meal with chicken, rice and salad, which seems to change from day to day. The chicken was seasoned with a delicious traditional sauce. The rice had small grains of corn, and tasted great! The salad was an upbeat: very nice dressing. The meal is normally introduced with a soup, but we skipped the soup fearing not to be able to eat everything (judging by the size of the servings).

Our visit was after a busy morning of walking around Buenos Aires. Calle Florida is known for busy shopping, and this place is a good stop for a meal. But beware, the place is not easy to find :( It is a small restaurant/bar in the lower part of a shopping center. The sphere is that of a small beach bar that you may find in the coast of Venezuela: bamboo, wood, and a collection of Venezuela's best commercial rums.
